Projection neurons are both the main recipient of inputs to the thalamus and the only conduit for its output. New anatomical, electrophysiological, and transcriptomic methods with single-cell resolution have in recent years revealed that the thalamic projection neurons are remarkably diverse. These differences prominently involve axon arborization and synaptic structure and dynamics. Here, I will review the single-cell level variation observed among thalamic projection neurons, and propose a tentative catalog of cell classes. These cell classes reflect a fundamental level of thalamic cell diversity that precedes nuclei formation or the establishment of connection systems.
